  4. 4. “ The” Singular and Plural In Spanish, there are singular articles and plural articles. They can be either masculine or feminine. “ The” For English, it is only one word.

Rest assured : Knowing what words are feminine or masculine comes with practice !! Over time, you will learn which is which…

  70. 70. Adjectives – Singular and Plural Adjectives give description to plain nouns like “boy” or “sky” to become “good boy” or “blue sky.” Adjectives change depending upon the noun—if the noun is masculine or feminine, and/or if it is singular or plural. Example: Masculine Singular Masculine Plural Masculine Singular Masculine Plural automóvil rojo automóviles rojos el automóvil rojo los automóviles rojos red automobile red automobiles the red automobile the red automobiles Feminine Singular Feminine Plural Feminine Singular Feminine Plural caja roja cajas rojas la caja roja las cajas rojas red box red boxes the red box the red boxes A noun and adjective An article, noun and adjective Adjectives have other rules, but we’ll cover them in another lesson.
  71. 71. The “–o” and “–a” endings of the nouns and adjectives are similar: – o compliments –o –a compliments –a – os compliments –os –as compliments –as: Spanish English libr o roj o red book caj a roj a red box libr os roj os red books caj as roj as red boxes This includes articles as well: Spanish English el libr o roj o the red book l a caj a roj a the red box l os libr os roj os the red books l as caj as roj as the red boxes Adjectives – Singular and Plural
  72. 72. Consonant endings— -dad, -ud, -tión, -r and –l are a little different! Just like with some nouns, there are some adjectives that end in a consonant and not a vowel. For singular descriptions, adjectives will stay the same, but for plural, add -es to the end of the adjective. Singular Plural Spanish English Spanish English la muchacha popular the popular gal las muchachas popular es the popular gals el muchacho popular the popular guy los muchachos popular es the popular guys Adjectives – Singular and Plural
